  • Helicopter at the scene where a shark bit a man's foot off

The Queensland Ambulance Service said Raddon had his right foot bitten off in the attack and that Maggs suffered serious calf lacerations.

"Both male patients suffered serious and significant lower limb injuries, and although they are conscious and alert, they were both in serious conditions upon airlifting to Mackay Hospital", a Queensland Ambulance spokesperson said.

The men reportedly told emergency workers that they were thrashing in the water before the attack.

The pair of tourists were on a snorkelling tour near Airlie Beach in the popular Whitsunday Passage region when they were attacked.

ZigZag Whitsundays, the tour group operator, said in a statement it was "saddened" by the incident.

She was back on board when she heard their screams and saw blood in the water as they thrashed around.

A woman and child were believed to have been mauled by a shark in January, while a man died of his injuries and a 12-year-old girl lost a leg in two separate attacks last year.

The attack comes just one month after all shark control equipment was removed from 27 beaches in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Trent Williams Says Redskins Docs Misdiagnosed His Cancer, I Almost Died
While speaking with the media for the first time this season, Williams said there is "no trust" between him and the team. Williams suggested it would be insane for him to play without having any guaranteed money on his contract.

Wheeler said tourism operators were seeking government funding for aerial patrols of the Whitsundays as an "interim measure" while research is undertaken into sharks in the area, which had been considered safe for swimming.

"My first thoughts and prayers are with these people, I believe they are OK at this present point in time, and also with the passengers and crew of this vessel".

"I just got one message from Danny himself and he said: "I am okay mate - but it was scary".

Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, told reporters in Brisbane. My main concern today is for the welfare of these two people that have been injured by what appears to be a shark attack.

"I will not shy away from my stance that the drum lines need to go back in", she said. The court ruling came after a lawsuit by Humane Society International.

The area also saw two other attacks take place in September of past year.

The report was commissioned by the State Government after three tourists were attacked by sharks in Cid Harbour late past year, including a Victorian doctor who died.

In response to those incidents, authorities culled six sharks in the area and installed drum lines - baited hooks which are suspended underwater.
